Christmas movies

We love movies. It is an easy way to spend time together and relax.

In October, I shared our favorite Halloween movies.

We really only have one favorite Thanksgiving movie : A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (of course!)

Christmas movies are not hard to find are they? Here is a list of some of our favorites. Please share any of your families favorites also!

It's a Wonderful Life (ok my kids get bored with this one...)
A Muppet Christmas Carol
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Garfields Christmas
White Christmas
the Santa Clause movies
How the Grinch Stole Christmas**
The Polar Express
Winnie the Pooh, A Season of Giving
Elf
Fred Clause (not one of those feel good Christmas movies but funny)
Jingle All the Way
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Home Alone 1 &2

To be honest, we have about 50 different versions of A Christmas Carol (Flinstones, All Dogs Go to Heaven, Muppets...)

**My personal opinion is that the Jim Carrey version of the Grinch is AWFUL. It made this sweet fun book into a disgusting mess. We ONLY watch the original. (:

I thought oh I will go on netflix and there should be plenty to watch instantly, but no such luck i guess i will have to order some.

I love Polar Express but have you considered "A Christmas Story"? I know it's not super-PC but I cannot wait til my kids are older and can laugh with me at that movie!

You know, it is funny because after I wrote this list, I thought of a ton of others!! I love A Christmas Story Rachel! It's so funny! Maybe I should make this list part 1!

I couldn't agree more on How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Another you might enjoy (the kids would probably get bored) is Christmas in Connecticut.
